This summer nine students graduated from the Great Rivers Adult Education diploma and GED programs. We were able to celebrate three of our grads in a ceremony last week.

Early Learning News

Picture it. You are at the park, playing with your child. You hear your cell phone beep for a text, or you are thinking about the laundry you need to get done when you get home, or you are composing your grocery list, or you are worrying about the lingering pandemic, or some other major crisis in the world. All of these things and more are constantly pushing against parents as they try to stay present in the moment with their child. Unfortunately, when we are distracted instead of present in these moments with our children, we miss out on so many wonderful and delightful things. This is where the art of noticing can help ground us in the present. It can also have the added benefit of helping us create connection with our children and encourage positive behaviors.
